From Fran Townsend, Homeland Security Advisor

Really big hat tip to my dear friend Karena for today's insane vomit from the White House. Yesterday, while Ed Henry was sitting in for Wolf Blitzer on CNN's "The Situation Room," he had THIS conversation with Fran Townsend, Homeland Security Advisor:

HENRY: But now as 2006 ends, Osama bin Laden is still at large. Heading into 2007, how confident are you that he can be brought to justice this coming year?

TOWNSEND: Well, there's no question in my mind that he'll be brought to justice. The real question is whether or not it's going to be this year. I will tell you that I feel increasingly confident, you know, it was interesting. There's a recent poll and the American people said 71 percent of them were optimistic that we can protect the country.

And I think they've got reason to be optimistic. We've made a lot of progress. They see the progress we've made. We've disrupted plots. We've made reforms in our system, in our security system. So on bin Laden, do I think we are going to get him? I absolutely know we're going to get him.

The question is will it be this year. And I will tell you I think there's increased activity both the part of the CIA, JSOC and our partners, the Pakistanis.

HENRY: You know, going back to September 2001, the president said, dead or alive, we're going to get him. Still don't have him. I know you are saying there's successes on the war on terror, and there have been. That's a failure.

TOWNSEND: Well, I'm not sure -- it's a success that hasn't occurred yet. I don't know that I view that as a failure.
(emphasis mine.)

Excuse me? Who does she think she's kidding? A success that hasn't occurred yet - like being a little bit pregnant?

Someone, please, wake up the Democrats and get these criminals and their lackeys out of office.

I wouldn't buy a used car from Homeland Security or anyone else in the Bush gang of thugs. Where did she get that 71% figure - something made up, I am sure.

glenda said...

pure bullcockery. I do not even know why they bother talking to them, as if they might hear anything BUT the party line...!

A success that hasn't happened yet! That's the best phrase of 2006. Sheer brilliance, and chutzpah like I've never seen before.

Unbelievable! Ditto what Robin said.

This sounds like the bs of we aren't winning but we aren't losing. They seem to get these phrases from a Scrabble board or something. Is there someone in the white house who is paid to write verbal bullshit? If there is, they should be fired because they aren't good at it.

Someone needs to isolate George W. Bush from the rest of the world. He needs to be quarantined. It appears his mental disease is contagious.

Even Tony Snowjob seems affected.

Is townsend the idiot that writes the crap that spews out of The Shrub's mouth? Her bs doesn't make anymore sense than his does..sad and very disgusting.

Peacechick, that's good. When I was a kid, in Illinois, Senator Everett Dirkson was our Republican Senator. My father used to say that if he was ever in a room with Dirkson, he'd have to keep his hand on his wallet.

Glenda, the party controls MOST of the media.

Robin Andrea, it does show a lot of chutzpah - and, I must say, it is a phrase I intend to use.

Pam, this administration makes my head spin sometimes.

Patricia, they do consult the oracle of bullshit.

Sewmouse, insanity is contagious if you hear enough of it.

Dusty, no, she doesn't write for Shrub. She is just towing the line. And she's as ugly as Ann Coulter. Thanks for stopping by.

Ewwww. What a retarded thing to say. What a mental midget. What a shrubby ass-kisser. I really hope that someday the MSM will dump all these idiots and replace them with more Keith Olbermann types.
